Chef’s Gala, the annual food and wine fundraiser for Heart of Florida United Way, is moving the event up next year. Usually held in May at Epcot’s World Showplace, the gala will take place on Saturday, February 4, 2017.
Citing scheduling conflicts with the venue surrounding the usual dates, organizers made the decision to go early next year.
Chef’s Gala features 20 chef’s from Walt Disney World Resorts and top Central Florida restaurants in a splashy, party-like atmosphere. Think Party for the Senses without the Epcot admission fee. (Guests are bused to the venue from the Epcot parking lot through the theme park’s backstage area.)
